Whether it is after  a long illness and expected, or, a sudden unexpected occurrence, death is traumatic experience for those left to morn the dearly departed.

If you are the closest and most responsible for the affairs of the  dearly departed, you may be left with the task of planning their final Farewell. You will want to honour the memory of your loved one in the best way possible. However, this will be a very overwhelming and confusing time.

We at Lee-Mason Funeral Home would like to help you through this process by providing these Simple guidelines if you are ever faced with any of the following situations.

1. A death at home-

  • You may also consider recommendations from family and friends or you can do an internet search for funeral homes.

2. A death at a hospital facility-

  • All deaths must be registered

3. An Unnatural death-

  • This is a murder, accident or tragic condition.
  • The police will order a post-mortem to be done
  • A post-mortem is the same as an autopsy.
